    *grin* It's tempting! But probably not.
    Primal eating in a nutshell: If you are hungry, eat Primal food until you are satisfied (not stuffed). Then stop. Wait until you're hungry again. Repeat.

    Sociology, with a focus on criminology and general social theory.

    Congrats Griff! (PS I like the sound of Dr. Griff. )

    So a series of small achievements:

    - a month and I had alcohol only once ( a couple of glasses of champagne). I think I have about kicked the "habit" of having it and made it an occasional MINDFUL treat. Still got another month to go, though to make sure it sticks.

    - I've seen a noticeable decrease in my abdominal fat this month. Same month as no alcohol-- coincidence? I think not. I think my fat burning has finally really kicked into gear, I can almost feel it when I haven't eaten for a while, but am not hungry and my body is just chugging along.

    - I've finally reached the point of not focusing so much on what I eat, it has become habit, I make good choices and I don't overthink the whole thing.

    - Not having to think about my food all of the time has allowed me to focus more on being more physical (and being in fat burning mode and having energy has helped). Moving more, sprints while dog walking, trying out hot yoga, etc. I'm trying to work as much into everyday life so that it's not such a stretch to do, just part of the day (like pushups at my desk here and there).

    - I now have several pairs of pants that can be taken off without unbuttoning I am not ready to shop for new clothes yet, but I have been moving into a different set of clothing that sort of fits for now. Tops that were once tight are now loose-- so a definite "smallifying" going on in my ribs and hips especially.

    I definitely feel like I've hit a new phase where all of the "primal" stuff is becoming more incorporated into life and less of me thinking about it and talking about it and working on it. Just living life, and incorporating some changes. Nice...

    All hail Griff! Congratulations, it is a major accomplishment.

    I'm happy to say I am being strictly primal, and it feels great. Old dogs can learn new tricks.
